Do I make art only to gain approval from others? I need a certain level of approval to function as a sane human being in society, but art is meant to be a form of communication, a communion of one soul with another. Approval seeking is biased toward the 'other'. The other sets the agenda and the other judges the result. Whereas with communication, each gives of themselves and responds from themselves. It is mutually enriching.
